Port City Web Welcomes New Sales and Marketing Manager and Makes Plans for New Corporate Offices to Accommodate Growth

PORTSMOUTH, NH--(Marketwire - November 30, 2007) - Port City Web, LLC (, an award-winning, full-service website design, development, hosting and marketing company, today announced that it is close to signing a lease on new, Class-A office space to relocate its corporate headquarters. Additionally, Port City Web welcomes Andrew Ghezzi as the new Sales and Marketing Manager at Port City Web.

Andrew Ghezzi will be responsible for re-building the sales and marketing teams and departments within Port City Web, as well as handling new sales opportunities. Prior to joining Port City Web, Andrew was the founder of the actions sports retailer, Powerline Sports. Over the course of four years, Andrew was instrumental in expanding its retail operations into three locations as well as positioning Powerline Sports as a top ranked ecommerce destination for kiteboarding related gear on the web. The business was sold in 2007 to a group of private investors.

Prior to Powerline Sports, Andrew worked in various sales and account management roles at E*Trade Financial in Boston, MA and Computershare in Jersey City, NJ. Andrew holds a Master's Degree in Risk Management from Georgia State University as well as a Bachelor's Degree in Accounting from Binghamton University.

"I'm thrilled to have Andrew join us and look forward to a new chapter in our history at Port City Web," noted Erik Crago, President and CEO of Port City Web. "His background in ecommerce, along with his experience in sales and account management, coupled with his years in New York City and Boston, helps Andrew stand out from his competition. His level of professionalism and understanding of ecommerce will help our customers immensely, and will help Port City Web bring on new levels of customers," noted Crago. "We have seen explosive growth in web services in 2007 and expect it to continue into 2008," said Crago.

Additionally, Port City Web is close to signing a new lease for just over 2,000 square feet of Class-A office space in the Pease area of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. "We have experienced another year of double digit growth and have run out of space in our current 4,000 square foot facility," noted Crago. "The new facility will have expanded conference rooms, more space for developers, designers and other professional staff, and the building is in the heart of Pease, the new business district in Portsmouth." The company expects to relocate the web services, executive, sales and marketing, as well as project management staff to the new location by the first of the new year.
